N.Schultz is the most tradable Oiler D... Any interest in him?

<-- Petry to PHI could also make sense..
The Schenn-Couturier debate will go on for a while, I'd guess, but the acquisition of Luke Schenn makes it very difficult to imagine the team trading Brayden.

I don't think the Oilers should deal J. Schultz either--but he's really the only piece that would makes sense for Couturier. Petry doesn't hold enough value--he might make sense in some other move, but not for Couturier. Klefbom is still a prospect.

N. Schultz doesn't really fit a need. As I've suggested elsewhere, the Flyers are sort of locked in with their six defensemen for next year, barring a trade:

Timonen-Schenn
Meszaros-Coburn
Grossmann-Gustafsson

Gustafsson has to be sent through waivers to go to the AHL, so I think that last spot is his to lose.
